CorePower Yoga has stretched into Bellevue with its Dec. 20 opening at the Avalon Towers marking the fourth studio to launch in the Seattle area since 2012.

The Denver-based yoga company opened its first Seattle studio in Ballard in 2012 and Capitol Hill and Green Lake studio earlier this year. Bellevue won't be the last, with plans for a fifth studio in Queen Anne to open in late January.

"Every choice that we make always ends up very successful," said Michelle Kuhnly, manager of the Bellevue studio. "We're not worried about competition. We're looking at where our service will help the most."

CorePower Yoga offers heated power yoga for various experience levels, yoga sculpt and hot power fusion, as well as yoga teacher training and lifestyle programs. To learn how to teach yoga involves an eight week course where students meet three times a week.

"I think the popularity of it will keep climbing," Kuhnly said of yoga exercise. "It's great for people of all ages, especially with all the variations. … All of our programs have to do with empowering the student who comes to the classes."

There's no reason not to try it, she said, because CorePower Yoga offers a week of unlimited free classes with no commitment required. Those with memberships are also able to attend any CorePower Yoga studio.

"It's really nice for people to have that available to them, and also if they travel," Kuhnly said.

CorePower Yoga is also offering $100 gift cards for $80 through Dec. 31 at most studio locations. The Bellevue studio is located at 10307 N.E. 10th St.
